Big News, xoxo Stampin Fool

Happy Thursday & Welcome back to StampinFool. I’ve been on a bit of a hiatus and for good reason- Baby #2 is on the way. Unfortunately, as baby has been making it’s way, I have been bearing the brunt of it.  It has left little time for crafting, shopping, cooking, or just about anything else.

Luckily, things are starting to look (and feel) better and we’ve hit the 16 week mark.  Babe is scheduled to arrive in early August.  We’re excited.

Now that I am getting my life back in order, you’ll be seeing more posts, more crafts, and more things coming out of the blog.  Thanks for bearing with me during this time.

Now who wants to see that bump?  I have a few pictures for you, as well as my first Maternity Stitch Fix outfit box.

Do you want to see the rest of the outfits I received in this month’s box?  Here they are:

I love this Black and white heart print sleeveless top.  It has a cute fluttery detail at the hem. It is slightly longer in the front which will make it perfect for wearing for a full nine months.

Don’t you love the bright blue color of this blazer?  It’s a great spring color!  Unfortunately, this didn’t fit over my belly very well, so it’s going back, but it is a great piece.

I LOVE LOVE this top.  The colors are bright and the pattern is interesting. I like the stretch in the sides and built in extra. It will make a great addition to my wardrobe.

Alright, you are going to love this maxi dress.  It has a navy top portion and coral and navy floral skirt.  I like the lightweight feel, the soft fabric and how pretty the print is.  Isn’t the coral color beautiful?

It’s the perfect addition to my little bump.  I am loving these pieces and cannot wait for my next box. I’ll share it with you as soon as it comes in!

DIY Advent Calendar: Project Life

Hello & Happy November! It’s time to start decorating for Christmas and get working on those Christmas crafts. One of my favorite traditions and holiday crafts is the advent calendar. I love that it gives you a chance to slow down daily and reflect.

My idea of a traditional Advent Calendar has a scripture reading each day.  Last year I made an advent calendar with the Project Life Hello December Cards and it was a perfect fit. This year, I have adapted the style and cards and done the same.  I have created Printable card with the Scripture readings for you! The cards coordinate with this year’s Hello December Project Life cards from Stampin’ Up!.

While I haven’t uploaded the photos of the Advent Calendar yet (I will this week!) I wanted to give you a head start on the reading and scripture cards.  You can print them out to coordinate with your Hello December 2016 Project Life cards.

Here is a preview of the cards: Days 1 through 6.  Below, I have provided a few different options for download: Red & Emerald, all Red, all Emerald, and B&W.  The cards are sized to 3 x 4″: Print on thick card stock and trim on the dotted lines.
